Last month I ported the libretro-flycast core to FreeBSD, and it has some
advantages over libretro-reicast core, which I ported previously.  Notably,
emulation of the Sega NAOMI platform, it works with dynarec enabled, and it is
easier to use with retroarch.

Out of respect to the reicast developers, I still want to support both
emulators, since reicast is the original codebase.  The authors of both
emulators have different approaches that both have advantages.

Even though the core documentation claims otherwise, rewind usually works.  I
tried numerous Dreamcast and NAOMI games that ran at full speed with high
accuracy.
